Happy February Menu Plan Monday! It’s been a good, rather quiet week here. I was able to fit lunches with a few friends in among my piano students. Today, I’m planning to bake cupcakes for the piano kids as Valentine’s gifts. I bought a kit with penguin cupcake toppers to (hopefully) make them look a bit zippier than regular cupcakes. I’ll try to post a picture of the finished product, although baking picture-perfect things has never been my specialty. Still, it’s the thought that counts. Are you making any fun Valentine treats this year?
I also realized that Lent begins this week — I’m playing for some of the Lent services at church, starting this Wednesday night. Easter is early this year.
Here’s the menu plan for the week:
Monday: Skillet Lasagna — tastes almost exactly like “regular” lasagna, but so much quicker and easier …
Tuesday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies —
Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a few carrots, a few potatoes – put in a roasting pan, then top with 1/3 c. olive oil and a packet of dry onion soup mix. Bake 45 minutes at 425.
Wednesday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — an easy favorite (uses the crockpot)
Thursday: Pizza Beans — a friend posted this on Facebook, and it looks good. We eat lots of beans here anyway, and this looked like a little different twist.
Friday: Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf — a favorite of daughter #3 (see photo at top of post)
